Work on the root not the Fruit.
A few years ago I began to work on personal and professional growth. I realised that the greatest challenge was my own thinking. I was operating from mind maps that led to the poor actions and undesirable results.
The surface idea is not the real thought, I am talking about paradigm, you might not even be aware of the current paradigm that determines the nature of your thinking. They are the real drivers giving you the results you have today.
